I don't think for one minute that Canon will cease design of Full frame lenses, for instance they've just launched a new 1DS and a new version of the EOS30 (Elan-7E) and 300V (can't remember what that's called), I don't see them ditching the 1V anytime soon either.

canon aren't known for updating lens designs often, they've still got glass which was launched in the original days of EOS in the 80s (28mm F2.8, 24mm F2.8, 85mm F1.2 etc) so just because they've not released any new stuff doesn't mean that they've given up, just that they don't feel the need to - the 28-135IS doesn't need revamping now as there is an EF-S lens to effectively replace it (albeit a softer, more CA prone, more expensive slower one) and there was nothing wrong with it anyway - the 16-35L could do with replacing with something which is as good as the Nikon equivalent and give canon users a good UWA F2.8 Zoom but with the 1D-II and 1DS-II, just get the 17-40 and crank the ISO up as it's low noise. there's nothing wrong with the 100-400L IS either that good QC wouldn't sort out and the only thing they could do with it is put in a 2nd gen IS which is only marginally better anyway, they've replaced the 35-350 with the 28-300IS (a NEW full frame lens) so that's sorted..

The Future IS Fullframe and canon are there, right on the touchline with a brand new Fullframer
